In 2012, at the behest of Mike Andre, a reluctant Justin Moyer (E.D. Sedgwick/Supersystem) and Amanda Huron (Weed Tree/Caution Curves) were conscripted into helping Mike play and record some unrealized songs he had floating around. After a series of precarious fits and starts, the band coalesced into a semi-stable entity known as “Puff Pieces” in 2013, and began playing shows.
Based on their experiences in various now-defunct bands (Amanda and Mike in Vertebrates, and Mike and Justin in Antelope), and long-term involvement in D.C.’s punk and noise scenes, Puff Pieces strives to destroy the bland hegemony of their city’s condo-crazed culture with a catchy mix of melody and nervous dissonance.
Band members’ other projects include:
Amanda: noise duo Weed Tree
Mike: solo acoustic under the name Mike Andre, and electronic music as Gold Corner
Justin: singer and sole proprietor of band E.D. Sedgwick
